Intro: Stud Earrings

Hi everyone! Today I am going to teach you to make really simple, pretty, funky, and fun stud earrings! Hope you enjoy this tutorial!

Step 1: Materials

All you will need for this project is:

E6000 glue

stud earring backs (to make earrings with) * you can find these on eBay, Amazon, craft stores, etc.

whatever you want the stud to be

Backs for the earrings so they don't come off while wearing *these can come with the other stud backs

Step 2: Make the Earring

1. Apply a generous dollop of E600 glue to the stud back. *Make sure that you don't skimp on the glue because you want to have it really stick.

2. Quickly press on the thing you want to be the stud, a button, a bead, whatever. You will have a little time to move it around and make it perfect, but you want to be quick about it. However, don't give up beauty and precision for quickness! You can use a toothpick or a pin to take off some excess glue and such. Be careful not to touch the glue, and if you do get it on your skin, flush immediately with water, as it says on the tube.

3. If you are doing a multiple part piece, like the gold flower and pearl earrings, first glue the gold flower to the earring, then glue the pearls on. If it is easier to glue the parts together first and then to the back, do that. It's all up to you!

4. Go for it! Play around, add dangling parts and more! And most of all, have fun!

Step 3: Let It Dry

Now that you have glued it on, you have to let it dry.
1. After the adjusting time of a few minutes, the glue will begin to dry and you should not continue adjusting or you will have to glue it again.

2. Now there is the hard part...
Even though you want to put them on right away, you have to wait 24 hours for the glue to completely set.

3. Once they are completely set, you can finally wear them!

Step 4: Finishing Touches

To finish, add backs and wear!!
If you want to give them as a gift, put in a gift box or a cute little bag!

    tions. I also made earrings from the very small bows or flat-backed beads. It is great fun to make a pair to match every outfit or holiday or color scheme.

    Ooh bows sound like a great idea! The pearls in my flower earrings are beads, and I'll certainly look into making some earrings with flat backed beads. I'll update you on my new earrings. :) Thanks so much for the ideas! :)

    I lived a stone's throw from a Walmart and made earrings for almost every possible reason. I had the little bows in 5 colors as well as the small glue-able things like straw hats or animals and if they had a flat area to glue to a post or even to hang from a french wire - I had a pair of earrings made form them. I even used Christmas ornaments for the mini-trees with posts or wires and did a craft fair one year selling them two pairs for $3 or 3/$5 and still made money - the best time for holiday earring making is when they are marked down after the holiday by 50% or 75% and buy the posts and wires in large bags to get the most for your craft dollar. Look forward to seeing your new pairs.

    I started making earrings many years ago and used your plan but used a hot glue gun. Except for possibly getting burned on the tip, this seems a little less dangerous to use and as far as I know, the glue itself will peel off as soon as it is cool so no special precau
